For INFO LAWYER ONLY:• We have a 1099 contract worker, she is running a few different programs for us right now. She is busy now, but we'll re-evaluate her role after May when things slow down.o A. Current, she comes into the office to work on her “projects” with the team (as a freelancer/contractor) from 830-4:30 and she does take an hour lunch break.o B. Can I be regulating her hours like that while her projects are in motion? Is it okay that she takes an hour lunch with the rest of my team (she invoices her work hours every 2 weeks)o C. Am I obligated in any way to cover her gas mileage to/from the office? And what about sick days?• another person - Our salaried employee makes under 40K per year. She works every day from 830-430 and takes an hour break for lunch. When is she entitled to over time and how does her hour long lunches factor into that?And finally - we have a part-time assistant (admin tasks) she works about 12 hours per week - her hours vary a bit but usually 9am - 12pm Monday - Thursday - we have her as a 1099 should she be an employee?

I have been at this exempt job at a Fortune X company with a

I have been at this exempt job at a Fortune X company with a very low turnover. People work here for decades and retire in their 60s.I was dissatisfied with the way the the department operated. So they found some reasons to give me low ratings in annual performance review and put me in a "performance improvement program".It seems to me that they are working towards a termination for cause instead of just letting me go with severance. The reason may be that I am very technically qualified and the company has hiring freeze. If they tried to let me go without cause they would not be able to find a replacement easily.What are my options?

I accidentally hit the nozzle on a gas pump. I happen to

I accidentally hit the nozzle on a gas pump. I happen to work for the station I was at. I was not working at the time of the accident I was now a customer. There was an employee outside at the time and saw what happened. I pulled my car away from the pump and there was some damage to the nozzle and my car. The employee went in the store to get a out of order wrap for the nozzle. When he came back out I said well ok I'm gonna head out and he said ok. The next day my dad and myself went in to talk to the manager and let them know I would pay for the damage. I was told that there was no need for a police report since I worked there. The next day I was scheduled to work. I went in was asked to come to the back room and sign a statement which I did and was terminated right there. They said it was because I did not go into the store and report it. I'm sixteen and figured the employee outside knew I did it and I thought that was all that was needed. The employee's statement was all they took they did not take my statement.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MnJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: It is at will.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Why I wasn't warned before I came to work when I had been in the store to speak to management two times with my dad too and no warning was given that I could be fired and why did they take the statement from the other employee but not mine.Do I have any rights?
